Plantation Jamaica XO Single Cask Rum as with most Plantation rums is first aged for many years in the Caribbean, in its hot and humid climate, generally in young bourbon casks. When they reach maturity or a desired age, they are shipped to Maison Ferrand’s Château de Bonbonnet at cask strength in order to preserve their richness of aroma and flavor.

There, they are finished by Maison Ferrand in their ‘traditional style’ for several months to a year in cognac casks in order to give them more roundness. Many of the standard Plantation rum range also have sugar added (called ‘dosage’ by some French producers) in order to create the sweeter rums that Plantation are best known for and popularly used by bartenders for mixing cocktails and tiki drinks.
